How to lace a bike rim

First, you need to know
1) the type and size of hub, and
2) size and type of rim. Then you need to know
3) the type of spoke lacing pattern that you want to use in your wheel.

From this information you can determine what type and length of spokes are needed for your project. Most bike shops have access to books and software that can determine your spoke lengths.

Next is how to lace.. will add that later

Rapid lace system problems.. uneven lace

Hi All,

I had an uneven problem with the DC Siloh '09s. Not sure if it will cover all makes and models but I will explain how I fixed it.

Key for the instructions:
Numbering the laces from top to bottom 1-8, outer side of the boot = little toe, innerside = big toe, and on the two laces that lock on either side of the boot (4 in total) toe and heel lace.

1. In order to make the laces even again you need to unlock the heelside lace on the outerside of your boot, this lace controls lace 3.
2. Pull lace 3 using creating slack now that it is unlocked
3. Pull the slack through lace 4 and then 5.
4. Once you have slack in lace 5 unlock the toe side lace on the inner side of your boot.
5. Holding that same lace pull the slack through the locking mechanism until you are happy with the balance.

For moving slackness from the inner to the outerside the opposite approach applies.

If it is not clear, reply and I'll try and take a photo or post a video or something.

My rim of bicyle is bent

Google this "fix bent bicycle rim" for many answers and videos.

The actual 'fix' will depend a lot on how it got bent. Many bicycle shops can lace a new rim onto your existing hub and spokes but you may find it cheaper to buy a new wheel.

I need to know what size spokes to get

Really, take it to a bike sop and let them look at it. Hub and rim brand and style plus lacing pattern determine the size.

I don't know the spoke lengths for the primo mix cassette hub or the primo n4 front hub, does anybody know them?

To calculate spoke length you need several data points.

1) hub dimensions (flange, center to flange, axle length)
2) number of spokes
3) rim dimensions
4) cross/ lacing pattern of spokes.

For a good web resource to find spoke length and help with building the wheel try this.

You can also take into your local bike shop and they should be able to calculate for you as long as you have the information for the 4 factors above.

I have a broken rim and need a new tire

Take it to your Local Bicycle Shop. A new wheel is probably cheaper than lacing a new rim onto your hub.

If you can't find anyone in Australia try contacting Woody's Wheel Works, perhaps they know of someone in your part of the world or can do the job.
